{mix and match) OUTDOOR DINING

In anticipation of our deck being built, we quickly ran out to buy some new outdoor furniture from Ikea {I say quickly, but this is actually an all-day event}. We eneded purchasing two chairs and a drop-leaf table from the Applaro collection. Like the rest of our house, we want our deck to be an eclectic mix of practical store-bought items as well as vintage finds and DIYs.

The turquoise and black chair was one I found on the side of the road last weekend. A little sanding, new fabric and a coat of paint transformed this chair instantly. However, it'a already going through another makeover after realizing the black panel was a little intense for it's delicate features. Stay tuned for the next reveal.
